[ Feature Request/Idea ] : ISO keyway tool (like Hole feature)

Post by Piero69 »

an useful engineering feature to add in PD is the keyway tool (working like like the hole one).

Idea could be:

1) selecting the circular edge (to measure it and offer consequently the correct standard dimensions of keyway BxH)
2) selection the reference face for the position (distance from border)
3) digiting the user's lenght according to standard one

waht do you think?

And if it could also include design calculations… But that’s likely wishing for too much.

Can you post a mockup of what you would like to see automated?

i imagine a keyway tool that, once run, it:

1) asks you the circolar border (diameter is calculated by 3d model so also the key size by ISO table)
2) asks you a reference face for the keyway
3) asks you the key lenght

now the tool automatically

4) creates a datum plane placed at diameter/2 - keyway depth according to given user's reference
5) generates a sketch with the constrained slot according to input
6) makes a through all pocket

that's some images to make it clear
